Why is serving in the Air Force important to you?
Serving in the Air Force allows me to do a job that I love while also providing for my family. It's been an excellent way for me to work hard, have fun and travel to some cool places.
What accomplishments during your Air Force career are you most proud of?
While deployed to Afghanistan in 2014, my team helped in the reconstitution of $3 million assets and the closing of six forward-operating bases. Each FOB we helped close was returned to the Afghan National Army. This was a truly unique accomplishment that I'm proud to have been a part of.
What are your personal and/or professional goals?
To develop as a young NCO and leader, and to finish my Community College of the Air Force degree.
What is your favorite part of your job?
Having the ability to build something from nothing and see it through to the finish. Whether I'm turning a pile of lumber into a building, or estimating plans for the new building database, I love starting with a blank canvas and finishing with something that people can use and appreciate.
How does the individual portray that core value?
"Staff Sgt. Haeseler is a new member of our Facility Condition Assessment Team," said Senior Master Sgt. Sean Nelms, 100th CES Operations Flight superintendent. "This team is charged with physically visiting every facility on the installation to capture its current condition for use in future asset management programs. Sergeant Haeseler's attitude and thorough evaluation of facilities have proven invaluable to the success of this team. He developed his own form for use in inspecting facilities, and has encouraged his teammates to follow suit. This additional effort has ensured the data collected is detailed and accurate, thus posturing the 100th CES to transition using the prioritized asset list which will be used with our new work prioritization system. This initiative allows the most mission-critical facilities to receive the highest and promptest level of service, and ensures all facilities are taken care of through proper asset management."
